34: The End… OR IS IT?

Good news: Fed’s wife had a baby! Bad news: this podcast is pretty much roadkill, at least for now.

This final, rambling epic of a session is most likely the last version of this show in its current form. Dan Wakes Up Screaming produced 61 episodes over four years, and we wish we could tell you that we left the world in better shape than when we started out, but you know how it is.

Here’s the main thing: we’ve got an idea for a new show, and as soon as we can all get in the same room for an hour, we hope to start recording it. It won’t be soon, but it won’t be impossibly far off either, so don’t delete this feed, continue discussing us with your podcast-listening friends, and keep rating us on iTunes, early and often.

From Dan and the other two fellows: many happy returns.

15.2: Dry Horizons

What do you serve to a Broadway producer who barges into your podcast taping planning to kidnap you and then force you into a life of indentured servitude in the theater? The answer, as we learn on this episode of Dan Wakes Up Screaming, is a small sherry with an olive in it.

James Taylor drops in at one point as well, and Fed provides a hot tip on how to get someone from Long Island to do something. Hint: print a custom Penny Saver that has an ad for free jet skis in it.

Also! We play the Teen Topix! game (spelling mine), and later discuss Dan’s crippling dependence on donuts, which leads into a conversation about the Atkins diet craze of the late nineties. And as if that weren’t enough, there is some swordplay in the third act. It is a magical evening.

More importantly, go read David Crabb’s newly released memoir, called Bad Kid! It was written by a very nice man who Fed and Dan had the privilege of working with in the past.

Other shout outs include our three hundredth Twitter follower, @podcastdan, and defunct Annapolis punk legends Pee Tanks. Finally, Dan does a very unflattering imitation of Andy Kaufman. Nice job, @podcastdan and Pee Tanks. Bad job, Andy Kaufmann.

14.2: Welcome to the Peace Department

Dan recently cancelled his subscription to cable television, which means that this podcast is probably doomed, because we can’t even picture Dan without access to CoziTV. If you see a very thin and panicky fellow trying to rent Murder She Wrote tapes at the library, that’s probably Dan. May God have mercy on his soul, and please enjoy episode 14.2 of Dan Wakes Up Screaming.
